Rider Fitness Program
Dressage4Kids participant Jordan Rothman is pleased to announce a new equestrian-specialized personal training program.

The program includes workouts and exercises that will allow athletes to develop the strength necessary for effective riding, including, but not limited to, core and low back muscles, latissimus and rhomboid muscles, leg and adductor muscles, as well as hip stabilizers.  There is also a focus on range of motion, mobility, and cardiovascular fitness.  

Jordan is offering a 50% discount to any D4K TEAM members.
